Ubuntu is now available on the Windows 10 Store

Ubuntu is now available to download on the Windows 10 Store.

Read more on Ubuntu's arrival on the Windows 10 Store.

One of these days I'll change my name to Mark Bench

So does this basically create a VM on a W10 machine that allows you to switch between OS's without having to reboot like dual machines used to do?

Yup, it's in the article.

Now the first of these three Linux distributions have arrived on the Windows 10 Store, allowing Windows 10 users to run what is effectively a Ubuntu virtual machine withing Windows 10.

I removed windows store, and i am using classic dual boot. This is full-proof solution, but old one hasn't been that difficult. It is good you can have another option.

Irony: everyone that runs Linux wants the exact polar OPPOSITE of this, with Linux hosting a Windows 10 VM for gaming. No one wants Windoze to be the runner of the VMs.

Warning on Preview program

Just an FYI as a problem I experienced after leaving the Windows Insider Program:

I left the WIP a couple of months ago, just uninstalled and it went to the "official" release version of Windows 10 at that time (the way the Windows support page tells you to remove WIP and have your Windows10 go official version) This is a few update versions before the Creators Update released.

Turns out that it can block your computer from upgrading to a stable newer release if you are part of WIP and leave it. Least that is what happened to me and for the life of me I couldn't figure it out. Turns out this page https://www.sysnative.com/forums/win...-progress.html and https://www.tenforums.com/installati...tallation.html helped me fix it. I had to get the computer to error code me Error Code: 80070003 FIRST before I could even find a possible fix for the reason the upgrade kept failing (reinstalling Windows 10 also wouldn't have fixed it, Reddit told me that much as people had tried and it didn't work).

But yeah my experience with the WIP after having been in it from the start of alpha Windows10 is if you can avoid doing WIP and just wait for an official release do it.

Again, this is just my personal experience I thought I would share
